Bridget Wayland, Writer, Communications Professional
"The Trans Canada Trail"
The Canadian Club of the Yamaska Valley invites all hiking, cycling, skiing, horseback riding, paddling and snowmobiling enthusiasts to attend it’s October meeting, when Bridget Wayland, the senior communications advisor of the Trans Canada Trail, will make a presentation on what is not only to be the longest and grandest recreational trail in the world, but also one that passes right through our region. Although this trail is only 75 percent connected, the Trans Canada Trail staff, along with legions of volunteers, and members of more than 400 independent trail groups across the country, are all working hard to fully connect the Trans Canada Trail by Canada’s 150th birthday — the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canada Day, 2017.
Bridget Wayland, who was born and raised in the Eastern Townships and currently resides in Dunham, began her career as a writer and magazine editor, working for such national titles as Canadian Wildlife, Equinox, Canadian Geographic and, most notably, Harrowsmith Country Life magazine, where she was the senior editor for more than 12 years. Bridget is also the founding editor of Harrowsmith’s Truly Canadian Almanac. In her present position as the TCT’s senior communications advisor, Bridget develops communications strategies and oversees the creation of multi-media content targeted for the non-profit organization’s “Chapter 150.”
Her presentation will take place on Monday, October 6th at 2:00 p.m. at the Auberge West Brome, 128, Route 139, West Brome, Quebec. All are welcome. The admission fee for non-members is $10.
